Hello,

I saw this iris in a local park in Encinitas California, zone 10a. Does anyone know what type it is? Thank you, Carly.

I am leaning towards Iris Macrosiphon because the white patch does not touch the edges of the falls.

This website mentions that they can be found in California.

It appears to be the wrong zone in California for Macrosiphon: http://www.pacificcoastiris.or...

Even though Encinitas is out of the zone of douglasii, it is one that is planted out of it's natural zones as a "native" plant in parks.. Also, it crosses with several other native species..
